Recently the lovely Casey from Elegant Musings posted a tutorial on how to make a cherry brooch. She was even more generous - hosting a giveaway of one of these pretty decorations.
I fell in love, and was intrigued by the thought of making my own cherry brooch. But I could not find any cherries at my local Lincraft, so I decided to have a go at making one from a vintage-looking button. What do you think?
I bought some more vintage-looking buttons, as well as some cherry red velvet ribbon too. I'm totally inspired. But I still want one with cherries dangling, like the gorgeous one made by Casey. She says she will be selling them in her etsy shop soon, so I think she's already got one eager customer!!
I've almost finished my Macaron Colette dress... just got to do the skirt pleats, zipper and hem.
